installing Arch


I have RH9 on a dual boot with server2k on the other partition,

Is it possible to replace rh9 with arch linux without messing up the win2kserver partition?

how would I do this?

Yes this is possible as long as you know which partition server2k is on e.g (check your /etc/fstab or lilo/grub config files. During the install you will be able to choose which partitions you want to install Arch to.

Most Linux distro's will show ypur partitions as /dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 etc

Arch is a bit different and uses :

/dev/discs/disc0/part1 instead of /dev/hda1 - so you need to take this into consideration when installing Arch Linux.
